Re: Official 2017 Cardinals News Thread

So Grichuk has been optioned to Advanced A with martinez being taken off the DL. So much for giving him a chance. This roster is an absolute mess. There's so many questions. Is the accounting department to blame for flawed evaluations. Is Mo to blame for having more faith in these players? Is MM to ...

Re: Luis Robert cleared to sign with teams

I've always likened Carpenter to Matt Holliday as a hitter. And to borrow some easier to grasp vocabulary from a pitching staff, they are both very good #2 guys, but neither are a legitimate ace. Not to make this a Matt Carpenter discussion, but in a way it kinda is. I see him as a Juan Encarnacion...

Re: Luis Robert cleared to sign with teams

This is what I've been saying for years. They need to make a splash at some point. Recently, the players they've invested in have not worked. And the bat that they've determined is the core of the offense, Matt Carpenter is far from a centerpiece. It'll be interesting to see how this thing plays its...

Re: Luis Robert cleared to sign with teams

Stuff like this keeps happening because their sells pitch sucks. Best fans in baseball. Winning tradition. Blah blah blah. They are just going to have to make some bills moves at some point. Or figure out why they aren't a desired destination.

Re: 2017 Ex-Cardinal Watch Thread

I'm very interested to see how Seth Maness performs and more importantly, I'm interested to see how that elbow holds up. This could be a real game changer. With baseball watching, Maness set to return to majors http://www.stltoday.com/sports/baseball/professional/birdland/with-baseball-watching-mane...

Yeah I had no idea he was still in the organization.

Geez, guys. Some fans you are. :lol:


I haven't thought about Mitch Harris since 2015.

It's pretty interesting that Wong has gone 5 for 14 since Mo reminded Matheny that he needs to play him.

Re: Luis Robert cleared to sign with teams

You know my feelings about this team and cash. They are loaded. So they may as well make a push for this guy.

Re: Luis Robert cleared to sign with teams

I think it'd be a worthwhile move. There is absolutely nothing to lose.

Re: Mo and Matheny Have Had Enough

People talk a lot about Wong's mental makeup. But one guy that doesn't get talked about is Carpenter. He is a totally different guy when he isn't hitting leadoff. It's mind blowing that there is nearly a 40 point swing between him hitting leadoff versus any place else in the order. I agree I'd plato...

Mo and Matheny Have Had Enough

The thread subject should actually be, Mo has had enough. There's a few meaty pieces in this article. Most notable being: 1. According to Mo, Adams won't be getting many more starts in LF. 2. Some players have earned the right to battle through slumps. I read those as, "Mike, what are you doing...

Re: Adams in LF

I agree. Wong looks the part of a stud. His skills haven't diminished and he isn't a fluke. His struggles today show the impact of what happens when you do everything possible to kill a guys confidence. But once again, this comes back around to Mo. He signed the guy to a long term deal. He needs to ...

Re: Game #13: Pirates @ Cardinals, 04/17/2017, 6:05 pm CT

I don't pay much attention to the standings until Memorial Day. But the fact that this team seems like they been sleepwalking since the start of the season is a bit alarming.

Hopefully this series is the beginning of some effective course adjustments.
